Intuity by Legrand, now on Android platforms
In a major expansion of the ecosystem for its Intuity home automation system, Legrand has released Intuity Version 2.1, including deployment of the first Intuity app for use with Android phones and tablets.
The firmware update also extends system compatibility to additional security system control panels, increases programmable automation features for lighting control, and improves the reliability of Wi-Fi links between system components.
“This is a significant update for Intuity to aid our installation partners in integrating their preferred security systems,” said Fritz Werder, VP and general manager, Nuvo/On-Q. “All of these enhancements, especially our compatibility with both iOS and Android devices, greatly expand Intuity’s appeal to builders and home buyers, and it confirms our commitment to continue enlarging the Intuity ecosystem.”
Werder said that the additional security panels supported in the new version were the DSC Neo, Interlogix Network, and Honeywell Vista 21IP and that the Android app is now available free from Google Play. Version 2.1 will download automatically to currently installed systems, and users of the system’s iOS app will be prompted to download an update.
Other enhancements in the new version, such as programmable “activity triggers” from RF lighting devices, give builders and homeowners added options for automatically controlling other devices or systems linked to Intuity.
